1000s attend day-long event at George Floyd Square on one-year anniversary of his death


Thousands of people visited George Floyd Square on May 25, 2021 for “Rise & Remember,” a day-long event to honor George Floyd’s life and legacy on the one-year anniversary of his death.

Hosted by the George Floyd Global Memorial (GFGM), with support from Mr. Floyd’s family and the GFS community, it was a day of reflection and protest, calls for justice, community gathering and celebration - with art, free food, an open mic and an evening concert that ended with riveting performances by Sounds of Blackness and surprise special guest Common.
